AbstractAim: In this study, we aimed to compare and evaluate the feelings of self-confidence of licensed high school and university athletes who are engaged in individual and team sports.
Method: Within the scope of the research, a total of 235 high school and university students who are licensed in individual and team sports in Samsun and Sivas provinces participated voluntarily for the Self-Confidence Scale. The personal information form prepared by the researchers consisted of 6 questions inquiring the gender, age, place of residence, educational status, branch and number of years of training. The Self-Confidence Scale prepared by Akın (2007) gives a Likert-type measurement between 1 and 5.
Findings: there was no significant difference in sub-dimensions and overall total score according to gender, place of residence and branch (p>0.05). there was a significant difference in the sub-dimensions of internal self-confidence, external self-confidence and in the overall total in the age category and education level (p<0.05). A positive correlation was found between the participants' years of practicing sports and self-confidence (p<0.05).
Conclusion: As a result, when the age categories of the individual and team athletes participating in the study were evaluated, it was found that older athletes had higher self-confidence. It was also observed that there was no difference in self-confidence in terms of gender
